Believe it or not, VHS tapes are fading fast! I still have 2 players at home, but I tried to loan some video tapes to a couple I was counseling recently and they took them, only to bring them back at the next session to tell me they don’t have a video tape player and neither did any of their family or friends!
DVDs, DVRs, etc. have made VHS practically obsolete. Every once-in-a-while I miss VHS (no scratched discs and fewer technical problems). We got a Blu-ray player at the beginning of 2010 and it died after about 8 months (of very little use, too, I might add).
